Beware Fake Cloud Dental Software – Draw the Impostors Out!

Have you seen a fake iPhone? Imitation iPhones look real until you use it and find its function is nowhere near a real iPhone. 

Why bring this up? Over the years, many legacy dental practice management vendors have started hosting their existing antiquated software using legacy products like Citrix, and tricking customers that they are receiving a "cloud solution". Like the fake iPhone, these antiquated cloud-hosted practice management systems fall short in user experience and accessibility compared to true cloud based systems.

Save Time & Improve Patient Experience with eForms

In our last post, we talked about killing your patient portal. These systems don't work for a large swath of the patient population, and they likely aren't worth your time to administrate them.

We understand the purpose and the ultimate goal of these portals. Your staff saves a lot of time when patients can input their own info right to their profile. You don't have to transcribe the handwritten forms, with all the accompanying headache (can you even read their writing?), and directly putting in the information is much more secure. Paper forms are easily copied or stolen.

Why Your Dental Patient Portal is a Waste of Time & Money

As a business owner and a dentist, you want to make your office experience as painless as possible on all fronts.
